How To Opt Out Of Behavioural Advertising
You may notice that sometimes after visiting a website you see an increased number of online advertisements from the site you visited. This is because businesses, including ourselves, pay for these adverts to encourage a visitor to return to our site. The technology to do this is made possible by cookies. We advertise on Google and show our adverts across the Google Display Network. You can find out more about how remarketing advertising works on Google here: How Remarketing Works

If you do not wish to see these adverts, the Your Online Choices page provided by the Internet Advertising Bureau (IAB), provides an easy way to opt out of behavioural advertising from Google and other networks represented by the IAB. Using this tool only applies to online behavioural advertising and websites, including this one, may still use cookies to collect information for other purposes.
